Running in Huaraches.

The last couple of weeks I have been running in my huaraches, from Invisible Shoe.    It has taken sometime, but I am really starting to feel comfortable running in them.   No doubt running huaraches is the ultimate minimal running footwear, I am a fan of Vibram Five Fingers, but huaraches are even better.  I love the freedom the huaraches give me feet,  the toes can totally splay out without being restricted.   So far I have been running in the huaraches without socks.

I took an interesting run a few nights ago after my night class.   I got home around 10:30pm, changed, and out the door.   I ran a 5 miler, by mile 3 I couldn’t wait to get home, just by gauging how my feet were reacting to the cold I knew it had to be really freezing.  I didn’t check the temps, nor did I know how cold it was before the run.   It was 16 degrees, and I ran without socks, my feet totally got numb by mile 4.  I was slowly warming them up in my comfy fuzzy Ugg slippers, my pinky toe on my left foot was concerning me.  It was totally white compared to my other toes, and was not warming up.  I went to bed with it still freezing, it didn’t fall off at night, so it’s all good.

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
